The Evolution of GWENT’s Factions

Imagine for a moment that you are the Lady of Time and Space herself, Ciri, and you’ve just travelled back to November 2016. Would you recognise the GWENT you’ve devoted hundreds of hours to? While it’s enjoyed a loyal following, there are many popular players that weren’t around during the very early days of Closed Beta. This was back when there wasn’t even a ranked mode and a “pro ladder” was the stuff of a Dragons Dream. The archetypes that made up the various factions have been through months of evolution – something which we recently covered in “5 Gwent cards that defined the past” – but with everyone gearing up for Homecoming, let’s take a more in-depth look at how the factions have changed.

I hope the next patch can do a good job at balancing

I mean...sure the recent patch fixed some of the issues (there are still many), and leave the balance completely except the silver spy....

Is it really wise to start another tournament without further balancing knowing that a certain deck occupies 40% population? And with bugs that makes swarm of cards on board and heavily RNG based but still competitive create in the way......I feel like a live show of current state of Gwent is not a really good decision

less than 10 days away from the tournament....I guess there can't be any big changes on both schedule and game play now, but still I'm just here to share my concern.

I just hope we don't see Vreemde leader, or 60 points RNG swing, or "it's time" a thousand time, or slave driver drives slave driver drives slave driver.....

(Gwent in current state is great for casual game mode and Great Dandellion Show, but probably not competitive tournament..)

That's what we're getting. The difference is that each player can ban a faction to play against. So either Dwarves get banned (like spies did in the last Challenger) or you know the player has a few anti-Dwarf decks in their line up. By being able to ban dwarves, you could argue that the competitive scene shows a game not available to a low ranked player but it'll be an interesting watch.
